I left Cuba, the country of my birth, in 1962 and choose NYC as my new home where I have lived most of my life. I returned to Habana for the first time in 2012 and again in 2014 with the Santa Fe Photo Workshops group. Both trips were wonderful experiences for me.

As a child I remembered being very visual, attracted to form, texture and color. During my school years I relied on visual presentation more than the written word and some of my teachers would say "content".

I bought my first camera - a Nikon - in Manhattan in the 70's and the long quest to capture my vision began.
